Putnam Bank Supports TLGV Programs with Significant Donation
DANIELSON, CT – Putnam Bank and the Putnam Bank Foundation’s generosity continues to enhance programs throughout The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor.
Putnam Bank is the exclusive sponsor of Acorn Adventures, kid-friendly programs offered by The Last Green Valley, Inc. (TLGV) every month of the year where children and their families can learn to letterbox, track animals, see sun spots and much more. Putnam Bank’s generous $1,500 sponsorship has allowed TLGV to expand the programs and give children the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors in a safe and educational way.
Putnam Bank also provided a $1,000 Gold Sponsorship of Tastes of the Valley, TLGV’s largest fundraiser and the original farm-to-table event of the region. Tastes of the Valley showcases local farms and orchards by pairing products grown, raised and created in The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor with top-notch, local restaurant chefs. This year featured a sit-down dinner featuring special guest “Farmers at your Table” to help bring new meaning to farm-to-table cuisine.
The Putnam Bank Foundation is a major sponsor of the 28thAnnual Walktober with a $3,000 donation. Putnam Bank has supported Walktober since 2001 and has helped it grow from one “Walking Weekend” into the six-week-long celebration that Walktober has become today.
“At Putnam Bank we believe in community and supporting events that enrich the area and the lives of those of us fortunate enough to live here,” said Tom Borner, president and chief executive officer of Putnam Bank. “The Last Green Valley’s Walktober is a perfect example of what makes this corner of New England such a wonderful place. We are pleased to support these events that so many can enjoy.”
“Putnam Bank has been a major supporter of The Last Green Valley for many years,” said Lois Bruinooge, executive director of TLGV. “Its contributions help us ensure our programming can not only continue but be enhanced to meet the needs of the region. Walktober is our signature event, Acorn Adventures serve a need for families throughout the National Heritage Corridor and Tastes of the Valley is our largest fundraiser. Each of these programs is critical for our organization and Putnam Bank has stepped up yet again to help us.”
